Experienced professional actor and acting coach, performed for The National Theatre, West End, Bristol Old Vic - Crystal Palace

Methodology

Methodology

I help with drama school auditions, GCSE drama and ongoing actor training for all ages.
I am committed to unlocking the potential within every single student. All my lessons are bespoke and tailored to the specific needs of the individual person.
Although my own training and experience was based on the Stanislavski “System”, I believe there is no specific system or ideology in order to achieve stimulating and moving work, it’s all within us already. Your biggest strength is the fact that you are you.

I have worked with directors such as Edward Hall (Propeller/Hampstead Theatre), Tom Morris (War Horse/Bristol Old Vic) Justin Audibert (The Unicorn Theatre) and Sarah Brigham (Derby Theatre) which has required wildly different approaches and complete openness as an actor.

Every one of my students are totally different and therefore I strive to give you confidence in yourself and together help you understand the obstacles faced in your work, whether you’re a student chasing your dream to get into Drama School, approaching a piece of work and need help and/or guidance or a hardened professional. My promise to you is I will always be honest and strive to make you feel like you can do and be anything and anyone.

Background

I have been working as a professional actor for 11 years and alongside my ongoing career I have been running acting and drama workshops independently and with companies including Propeller, The Orange Tree Theatre, The Watermill Theatre as well as one on one with students.

I am also a writer and improv performer and write plays, sketches and comedy / character monologues.

I started my weekly voice training lessons with Neil after I had just moved to the UK and had been just about starting to look for a job. I am a project manager and good vocal skills and clear communication is a must. The problem I faced at the moment was a difficulty to articulate in uncomfortable situations - sort of a panic which impacts one’s voice. Moreover, having English as a second learned language wasn’t helping at all. Neil came up with a very good plan to help me achieve my goals. Each class consisted of two parts - the first comprised relaxation exercises based on Alexander technique to overcome anxiety and re-gain control over my voice, and the second - practical training to improve vocal clarity. Neil was also great in keeping the right pace of the lessons and I started to feel that I was making baby yet noticeable steps after several weeks. One more thing I liked about his approach is exercises when one ‘visualises’ how sound is being produced and how it is moving in space - I found it to be very helpful for controlling the voice. So I will certainly recommend Neil as a voice tutor - just to mention I did find a job quite soon and fully acknowledge that Neil’s lessons contributed a lot to my confidence to do that.

As an actress in training, I often find myself surrounded by many contradicting opinions on how I should approach my future in this industry, which has often made me tentative and fearful of the acting world. Thankfully, I have been fortunate enough to participate in several one-to-one session with Neal, who has thoughtfully and thoroughly been by my side throughout this journey. Neal is a fountain of knowledge and I have highly benefited from his many years of experience as a working actor. He is also an incredibly empathetic individual, who has been great at creating a safe space for young actors to open up without fear of being judged. I feel incredibly lucky to have found Neal, who I now refer to not only as my acting mentor, but as a dear friend, and I would highly recommended him to anyone who wishes to seriously commit to the acting profession.
